Small Groups
Have you been searching for a way to get connected at The Chapel? Are you looking to grow your relationship with Christ and other Christians? Then you need to be in a Chapel Small Group! Chapel Small Groups can meet at any time, and while we do have a few mid-week groups, most meet on Sunday afternoons or evenings. The average group meets for two hours and consists of 10 to 12 people. A typical Small Group meeting includes Bible study, prayer, fellowship and food!  Click here to learn more and sign up.

Mondays from 6:00–8:00 p.m. 
The finality of death is hard to accept and that’s what GriefShare is all about. It is a 13-week seminar and support group for anyone who has gone through the loss of a loved one. You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any session. Each is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence. Cost is $15 for seminar materials. Click here to learn more and register.
